Fidel - Getting openers early key

KOLKATA, India, IANS/CMC – West Indies fast bowler Fidel Edwards says getting Indian openers Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag out early would be the key to taking control in the second Test against India at Eden Gardens, starting Monday.

“The plan is to get the openers out as early as possible. This is one way we can check the flow of runs,” said Edwards, who is gearing up for his 50th Test.

“Besides, having played as a unit in the previous Test, we need to push India further here as well to create some chances for ourselves.”
